What is it? U-Haul Car Share App

U-Haul Car Share® is exactly that: a car sharing service. You can use the app to find where the nearest U-Haul Car Share®vehicle is and register your information. After entering your information on the app, you can drive away in the vehicle, and it only takes minutes! You can choose from a variety of cars, many of which have collapsible seats, so you can pack it with everything you will need. Almost anyone can use a U-Haul Car Share vehicle. These are the only requirements:

Applicants 18 years of age and older:

  • Have a valid and current Driver’s License
  • Must be able to upload a current picture of your driver’s license and photo of yourself
  • Have a valid credit card payment
  • Have zero alcohol or drug related violations within the past 5 years.

 

U-Haul Car ShareHow does it work?

Once you have access to your vehicle, it is easy! You don’t have to worry about gas because each vehicle is equipped with a gas card you can use. You also don’t need to worry about insurance because it is included in your reservation. You can choose to use the vehicle for just a few hours or for the day and can even extend your reservation using the same app. Just remember, you can’t actually leave the country, so stick to day trips and please don’t text and drive.

Using U-Haul Car Share® takes the burden of using your own car out of the equation and makes for a worry free day trip.
